Queensville Dam & Buttery Brook Restoration

South Hadley is the proud recipient an Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) FY 23 Action Grant to fund the design and permitting of watershed improvements at the Titus Pond Conservation Area and  Buttery Brook watershed, including: 

Removal of the Queensville Dam/Titus Pond impoundment on Route 116/Newton Street,

Restoration and ecological enhancement of the Titus Pond impoundment to increase flood storage capacity and habitat function, and

Downstream watershed improvements along Buttery Brook, including a right-sized replacement crossing at Mountain Avenue (the first downstream crossing below the existing dam) and improvements to the inlet to the buried stream section at Joffre Avenue.
